Alley’s Lame Delegate Play 

It’s one thing to hear of disenfranchised voters across the country in Florida, Ohio, or Wisconsin; what is that but abstract hearsay? But now we have proof and ample witnesses of just that here in the Pacific Northwest.

Most voters don’t realize the representative process for the citizen is the Precinct Representative, or PCP. The Republican Party  PCPs from across the state held their convention June 23rd. There were five conventions across the state with approximately 900 PCPs in attendance. We drove from all over the state to five separate locations and spent at least 12 hours voting for the Oregon State Republican delegates, state electors, and their alternates, some of whom will go to Tampa, Florida at the end of August to represent the Oregon voters’ choice for the Republican presidential nominee.

Then, Allen Alley, the Oregon Republican State Chair, summarily voided the five conventions’ votes, nullifying the PCP’s choices for the alternates and installed 24 alternates of Mr. Alley’s own choosing, thus breaking Republican National Convention Rules.

Republican or not, are you going to stand for this, Oregon? You can contact Allen Alley here, if you wish, at the Oregon Republican Party (503) 595-8881 or Allen@AllenAlley.com. And this guy’s actually thinking of running for governor?
